1940s RKO character actors,,,


Recommended Posts

Hello All:

Can you help identify these character actors from RKO; all the photographs have an RKO Photographer's name (Bachrach usually) stamp on the back.  I tried to identify them with no luck.  Thanks.

#1  back of the photo has handwritten "Reid" (photograph is by Henry Fruelich)

#2

Agree. He was in THE SPANISH MAIN (1945)

It's not Hodiak. It's Craig Reynolds in NEVADA (1944).

Just a quick thank you, once again, for the help in identifying the actors in these photos!  It is much appreciated.    Attached is one of my most prized possessions: a candid shot of Katharine Hepburn with director HOWARD HAWKS  from BRINGING UP BABY.
